In Grief Need to be Seen posted at rmott62, we get a discussion about the pressures to keep grief hidden in order to be accepted while speaking out against the violence in prostitution.
In Vintage Victim-Blaming: Feminism Causes Rape, and Other Crime Prevention Tips posted at The Sexist, we get an analysis of a 1977 statement by the Venice, Florida police chief and how many of those old claims continue to be made.
